Meridian Cosmo City Primary School

Academics

Meridian Cosmo City is an independent Curro-managed Meridian school in Cosmo City, Randburg, that offers high-quality education for learners from Grade RR (age 5) to Grade 7. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and focused sports and cultural activities, we try to ensure affordable school fees without compromising our academic standards, 21st-century skills or our enhanced curriculum.

As a Meridian school, our school is managed by Curro as part of a joint venture with Old Mutual and the Public Investment Corporation.

 

Foundation phase: Grade RR to Grade 3  

With dedicated teachers and affordable school fees, our foundation phase starts by providing the emotional and intellectual foundation required to handle the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. Through our enhanced curriculum, we gradually develop learners’ 21st-century skills and knowledge in basic areas such as language (comprehension, speaking, and listening), mathematics (counting and understanding numbers), and creative problem-solving in an environment where they enjoy coming to school. As a Meridian school, learners also benefit from having Afrikaans or isiZulu as additional language options.

 

Intermediate phase (Grade 4 to Grade 6) and Grade 7  

In these grades, learners are taught to work with the learned material in an abstract manner. The nature of the content gradually builds from being tangible and real, to more intellectual and abstract. We also prepare our learners for high school by teaching them to work more independently and how to apply the material (21st-century skills and concepts) they have learned rather than just memorising it. Through our enhanced curriculum, we also promote creativity and critical thinking by encouraging them to make their own choices within well-established boundaries.

As a school managed by Curro, teaching takes place in English, while isiZulu and Afrikaans are offered as additional language options for all learners in the primary school.

Meridian Cosmo City activities

At Meridian Cosmo City, we believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, our variety of activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. Our extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches. They are offered at an additional cost and generally take place on the school’s premises.

In addition, activities such as chess helps to stimulate thinking patterns such as logical analysis, problem-solving and forward-thinking analytical skills. These activities also improve skills and aptitude for subjects such as Mathematics.

 

We offer value-added programmes

Value-added programmes are aimed at enriching learners’ academic experience and broadening their understanding of how learned material can be applied. Some programmes even support physical health and movement. These value-added programmes are included in our affordable school fees as part of our commitment to a holistic education.
